Social Media & Internet Safety
Sandwell Academy recognises that modern technology is an intrinsic part of modern-day life and our students use ICT extensively both in school and out of it. However along with the opportunities that ICT offers it also brings with it problems and risks that all students need to be aware of.
E-safety has a very high priority in Sandwell Academy and all students, (and staff) receive advice and guidance appropriate to their age and "e-awareness". As well as learning about e-safety in their ICT lessons, students get more targeted input during assemblies and PT time. In addition all Year 7 parents are invited, with their children, to a parents’ evening early in the new term when risks and safety measures are outlined.
